Ream Wilson Trail's numbered decals will aid responders


Wilson trail decals will aid responders

The Ream Wilson Trail now has emergency response system decals, similar to those in place along the Pinellas Trail. The decal numbers are in Pinellas County's computer-aided dispatch system, so emergency responders will be able to pinpoint where help is needed. The decals are bright yellow and are placed directly on the trail about every 300 feet. Each decal features a unique location number and a phone number to call to report maintenance problems along the trail. The decals begin north of Cooper's Bayou Park between Clearwater and Safety Harbor with RWT-01, and continue to the Long Center with RWT-81. The decals pick back up at the beginning of the Memorial Causeway section on Turner Street with RWT-155 and will end at Pier 60 with RWT-199. Once the Druid Trail section is complete, it will also have decals numbered RWT-82 through RWT-154. .

Downtown-focused website honored

Downtown Clearwater's website, www.Cleveland, has received the outstanding achievement award in the government category from New York's Interactive Media Awards, created in 2006 through the Interactive Media Council. The judging criteria for the award included design, content, feature functionality, usability, standards compliance and cross-browser compatibility. The website went online in April to improve communications in the downtown district.
